A member of the Council of Elders of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Amma Busia has stated Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and his wife, Samira Bawumia, have contributed significantly to the victory of the governing party.
Speaking in an interview with Accra-base Asaase radio hosted by Nana Yaa Mensah, on Sunday Night, Busia said the couple really helped to increase the party’s fortunes, especially in the northern regions in the just ended election.
“You see, I think a lot of credit should go to Bawumia and his wife Samira Bawumia, He worked very hard. And before the elections he visited me and said ‘mummy when the resource comes, I know we will make inroads’,” she said.
Busia added: “And Bawumia cuts across between the youth and the aged and everybody seems to like him and his wife, and so the North shot in our favour. I think we should give thanks and credit to Bawumia for the work he did there, people may not agree with me but that is my personal opinion.”
She believes the party must forge a strong relation with government in a manner that will be beneficial to the two sides.
“The party should always be at the background but the party should be a springboard for the candidate to sleep on it, jumping up and down. So, we should try and build that relationship between the party and government so that the party knows what is going on and the government will also think and know that it is the party that brought me here,” Busia added.
